CAS at Sweet Stampin'

Good morning, hope the sun is shining for you wherever you are. Our challenge at Sweet Stampin' this week is Clean and Simple, I was delighted with this as I haven't had much time to spare the last few days -and I have some lovely new stamps from Visible Image that I've been itching to play with!
My card is a simple tent-fold blank, I cut a piece of white card just slightly smaller and mounted it on a panel of dark maroon coloured card (I know it looks black in the photo, but it isn't :). I stamped the paint swoosh stamp 3 times with distress ink (aiming for an ombre effect), then a stamped a couple of 'drips' to make it look as if the paint has run. I stamped the sentiment over the top with black memento ink. It looked a bit bare so I stamped the 'thumbprint' in the corner (seems funny to do this on purpose, usually I try to disguise thumbprints :), the top border was made with an EK Success punch. Simples and quick!
Thanks for visiting today, hope you'll be tempted to play along with the Sweeties this week, there's a Sweet Stampin' Goodie bag waiting for the lucky winner so just click here to pop over to the Challenge Blog.
Have a great weekend.
